A French equivalent of a Forestry Commission site but better. We stayed for two nights at the end of August on a camping pitch with EHU normal caravan plug, the pitch was large and we had the choice of three as directed by the guy on reception who also showed us round all the facilityís (showers, toilets, pot wash & bar)all of which was clean and tidy. As we found out the next day there was no hot water-in fact none for the two days we stayed! The pitch was flatish but we could only get the tent pegs in half way no matter what we tried as the ground seemed very rocky. I think that there were no more than about 12 pitches being used on the whole site so seemed very quiet.

The bar/restaurant was good with table and chairs outside to look over the lake. There are a few essentials on sale at reception along with leaflets for days out. Didnít try the food but the drinks were OK on the hot days we stayed. Like most sites order your croissants at the bar for next day collection. The pool is interesting in that itís got a green liner and naturally filtered water but everyone seemed to enjoy it. There are bikes to hire and two punt type boats to use (free) paddles and life jackets provided. Also a freezer for ice packs.

The local town was very quiet with a ch‚teau/museum; there is also a supermarket, bars etc. We drove to La Loupe which had a better choice of supermarkets-Carrefour & Intermarche.

A nice quiet site to chill out and relax and walk in the woods which are deciduous and not your normal pine the paths are wide and well sign posted.

We stayed here for two nights. It was brilliant. We got a pitch in the forest. The kids (7, 5 and 2) spent two days building dens, collecting pine cones and finding bugs and giant slugs.

It has lots of midges and mosquitos so take plently of insect repellent.

The toilets and showers were always clean and had plugs at them so you could even dry/straighten your hair (oh so important I know, but it makes me feel more human).

I just wrote a long review of all the things we did at Chateau de Marais but here we spent most of the day on the campsite and the kids really had a ball.

They have a lovely cafe/restaurant on the lake which we ate at on our last night. It makes it's own pizzas which the kids had and we had organic steak burgers which were all lovely.

Above reception is an area where the kids can draw, play games, has table football, books and a large flat screen tv with a dvd player. We went here when it poured and was so nice to get out of the damp tent and relax, especially on the BIG sofa.

The lake has row boats which are free to use (with life jackets) and bikes to hire. They also have a good playpark.

The only disappointment was that they advertised activities in July and August such a pony rides, learn to bake (environmental course type stuff) and night-time activities for families such as a concert or cinema night, however these didn't start until the 7th July so we were a few days too early.

All in all - a brilliant few days and which we could've stayed longer.

This campsite is run by Huttopia, who have an arrangement with the French Forestry Commission to run campsites in national forests. We rented on of the Cahutte units, which is basically a wooden cabin with a canvas tent roof which incorporates the sleeping areas. Loved everything about this site. The site centres around a lake next to a large building incorporating a restaurant / bar / visitor lounge / reception area.

Very friendly staff who speak english well enough for the needs of most visitor, this is a very relaxed site where visitors are encouraged to chill and enjoy the spectacular surroundings. The site is run on eco-friendly principles, which include organic items in the (very) small on site grocery, a living roof on the main building, and lots of information available for anyone interested in water saving, composting etc.

All expected mod cons are available, including free internet access in reception, and a laundrette. The swimming pool is particularly interesting, it looks like a traditional pool, but actually uses filtered lakewater and incorporates waterplants to keep the water fresh. Free firewood is available for use in units with woodburners or for the strategically placed official firepits. The local town is about a 10 minute walk away, and you can wander straight into the local forest via a path just outside the campsite boundary.

Pitches are available for independent campers, with a choice of a 'sunny' or 'forest' pitch - car access is limited so be prepared to park in the communal car park and use one of the trolleys to hoick your stuff about.

This is a fantastic, peaceful, friendly site. You can choose where to pitch your tent - either on the edge of the forest or in the forest. Each pitch has a picnic table which is really nice.

The toilets and showers are all brand new and are kept really nice and clean. The bar/restaurant is overlooking a lovely lake and serves tasty pizzas! The kids club got a big thumbs up from my kids and the organised activities eg horse riding were very good value. The site felt safe and friendly. There is a nice play area and a volley-ball area and table tennis. The pool is an eco pool - it's filtered by reeds and is an amazing green colour. It's very cold but great to be able to swim in a non-chlorine pool. My children loved it!

We didn't really explore the local area very much - the nearest village is quiet with not much to see. However, if you want somewhere you can have some peace and quiet and feel close to nature this relaxing site will be perfect.

We were only going to stay 2 nights but the site was so nice we stayed for 4!

Lovely quiet campsite amongst woods and a lake. Staff very friendly and helpful. You can choose whether to pitch in the field or go into the woods. If you go into the woods no cars are allowed so you need to use site trollies to transfer your equipment. Fresh, clean toilets and showers.Pizza restaurant overlooking the lake expensive, but good food. Nice activities for the family, boating, fishing, horse riding. Free horse and cart trip to the town on market day.Only regret is that we didn't stay longer than 2 nights and the kids weren't keen on the green (natural)swimming pool.
